Music is not what we usually post about, but, OMG If you haven’t heard of Maggie Rogers then you are about to! We predict this girl is going straight to the top of the charts with her new song Alaska.
I first heard of Maggie when I saw a viral thread about Pharrell listening to her song at her music school, and his too- cute reaction to it. He was floored and quite honestly, so was everyone else!
Maggie admits in the video (*cut to 18:18) that she started out playing banjo folk music in her small home town (we dig it!) and had a dazzling (in her words “spiritual”) love affair with electronic music when she spent some time in France (FYI the french LOVE house music). From there she went back to her roots and combined the two using, wait for it, NATURE SOUNDS SHE COLLECTS HERSELF! If there is anything that we can get down with more than Maggie’s actual track its the fact she explores in nature, collects the sounds herself, and turns it into music! I mean come on, what is cooler than that?! It certainly deserves a little shout out from us. A BIG congrats to our fellow naturist Maggie, we hope you’re bound for stardom because we’re already huge fans and can’t wait to hear, and see more of you!
Maggie’s haunting melodic voice and the primal sound of soft american indian drums in this track are addictive, and we recommend you have a listen.
